SPECIAL INFORMATION
In a study conducted at the Department of Health in Pennsylvania, five antibiotics, including minocycline, were tested in guinea pigs with Legionnaire's disease. In this study, the most effective antibiotic was Minocin; use of this drug resulted in a 50% survival rate in infected guinea pigs. The other antibiotics, rifampin, amikacin, tobramycin, and gentamycin, were less effective. In this study, surviving guinea pigs remained healthy and were able to produce antibodies (molecules in body fluids that destroy or neutralize bacteria and toxins) to the Legionella bacteria. In another laboratory study, minocycline was found to be the most effective drug in guinea pigs infected with Legionnaire's disease. Minocin was as effective as doxycycline (an antibiotic) in blocking the growth of Legionella bacteria, and prolonged the animals' survival. Overall, this drug is recognized as having antibiotic activity against this type of bacteria.
